[Gluster-users] Recovering from remove-brick where shards did not rebalance

I did a bad thing and did a remove-brick on a set of bricks in a distributed-replicate volume where rebalancing did not successfully rebalance all files.  In sleuthing around the various bricks on the 3 node pool, it appears that a number of the files within the volume may have been stored as shards.  With that, I'm unsure how to proceed with recovery.

Is it possible to re-add the removed bricks somehow and then do a heal?  Or is there a way to recover data from shards somehow?
